    Those look sharp

    I wonder what the government could fund with the money allocated to military uniforms, or even just the costs associated with unnecessary changes to the uniforms

    It’s going to come out of the pocket of the soldiers mostly.

    It will probably be relatively cost neutral for new soldiers as you would have issued them the current dress uniform. But I have heard this uniform will be a nicer material so it may be an overall increase. But they’re also going to quit issuing them to the kids who quit Basic Training which should say a substantial sum.

    They look cool but I have no interest in buying one. Especially after spending $200 to convert mine to officer for a uniform I’ll wear once a year.

    On one hand, we haven't even had dress blues for a decade.

    On the other hand, the dress blues fucking suck.

    I'd prefer the greens that immediately preceded the blues. These look like we're playing dress up with a costume.

    I only care about two things when it comes to the troops:

    1. Does it give them a better chance to win or do their job better?
    2. Does it help them survive or make them safer?

    Otherwise, I’m pretty neutral on most things.

    servicemembers end up buying a lot of their uniforms and that shit is expensive. my wife's dress hat was like $120. I think she wore it once. can't wait to shell out another couple hundred for this to hang in the closet.

    also nice subtle tweet troll by lechnerd

    You werent aware of this? He has some interesting ideas regarding veterans and how he feels about them

    Also, got issued the green class A for graduation, over three years they sent me pieces of the blue and I ended my contract with out a blue.

    ACU was the worst uniform decision

    I wish they were the same material as the UCP. They’re heavier for some reason and breathe less.
